Thank God for the Bible! But why do so? Let me suggest a few reasons.
- The Bible came from God. Its ultimate author is God, who infallibly guided the persons who wrote it .
- It is a Book of truths that we would not know unless God revealed them to us in the Bible.
- It tells us where we came from. That is, we came from God.
- It tells us where we are going for eternity. That is, we are going either to bliss in heaven with God, or to misery in hell without him.
- It tells us how to get to heaven. That is, it tells us of the Lord Jesus Christ, God’s eternal Son, who came to earth from heaven to die on a cross in payment for our sins so that we can receive forgiveness of sins by believing in Him, by accepting Him, as our personal Savior.
